So I have an old household recipe for Mennonite Zwieback that calls because that 3 cubes the butter come 7 cups of flour.

You are watching: How much is a cube of butter

The problem is, "cube" appears to it is in a colloquial measurement meaning either a literal cube (2 tablespoons), a whole stick (8 tablespoons), or half a rod (4 tablespoons).

With a "West Coast" rod of butter, a literal meaning cube is a fifty percent stick (4 tablespoons) . One "East coast stick of butter is 1/4 pole (2 tablespoons).

I'm leaning in the direction of a cube equaling 4 tablespoons based much more on the context of the recipe.

Any various other perspectives out there?

This recipe leader me come think the Mennonite version you space trying because that is not much like the teething biscuit/biscotti zweiback that i think of. Deserve to you post your cooking recipes or at the very least a description of the product you room expecting to make?

Yep. This is the kind that i make.

The teething biscuits in reality come native this sort of zwieback, which method "twice-baked."

Any zwieback the isn't consumed the work is made is sliced thin baked again to toast it, which provides it crisp up.

So a cube ended up being 4 tablespoons.

After analysis through countless anecdotes around the butteriness that the rolls and comparing the batter come flour ratios of various other recipes I offered it a go and also they were amazing.
